laying out his wish list for a sweeping bill on gun control. even through what would ronald reagan do reference for good measure. plus more on the bombshell report that te'o's girlfriend that inspired him did not, in fact, exist. we'll break down all the details but lance armstrong is the sports story the year and it's bizarre. first let's get to the news live here at 5:30 a.m. at 30 rock in new york city. we begin this morning with gun violence in america. president obama planning to introduce legislation next week calling for the biggest changes to gun laws this country has seen in two decades. yesterday the president surrounded by children who wrote him letters after the newtown tragedy urged congress to take action on a number of proposals including universal background checks for anyone buying a gun, restoring the ban on military style assault weapons and limiting magazines to ten rounds, giving law enforcement additional tools to prosecute gun crimes and improving the mental health system for young people in this country. the president also outlined 23 executive orders that most
or support the second amendment, well, that would suggest the same of ronald reagan, of antonin scalia, of clarence thomas, of justice roberts, of samuel alito, all of these hardcore conservatives who have said that the second amendment is not about protecting somebody's right to have military-style assault weapons. >> so the question is, you've got the power of the nra versus the power of the emotional force, richard, that you were talking about. and kelly, the president outlined 23 executive orders. tell us about those. but first, what do you make and what are you hearing on capitol hill about the possibility of this legislation as it stands, as he presented it, going through? >> reporter: well, one of the things i think we really have to watch are senate democrats because we know that the house, run by republicans, is not going to jump to take any specific action. speaker boehner's office says they're going to wait and see, what does the senate do and then consider it. so that's sort of a real signal that there won't be any action on the house side. so if you look at senate democrat
model for him would be bill clinton's inaugural address, or ronald reagan's second inaugural. both of those were similar kinds of political environments. congress was in the hands of the other party. or one house was, at least. and each of them was very gracious towards the other party. reached out, said things about the goodwill of the other party. >> the difference there is reagan could look back and talk about how the republicans worked with democrats to fix social security, bill clinton could look back and talk about the deficit reduction plan. other things they had done a little bit together. it's harder for president obama to do that because there's been so much polarization. >> polarization has been on both sides. it would be a good step for the president, i actually don't expect him to take it. to try to put that behind, to have at least a rhetorical frame for being more enveloping. obviously in the last few days, last week or so, he hasn't taken that tact. he's, he had his press conference about a week ago. he's had some, they've floated some stories about how they're goin
, was not elected. so he doesn't count. he was from michigan. jimmy carter from georgia. ronald reagan from california. the first george bush from texas via connecticut. bill clinton from arkansas and the second bush from texas. so 2008 in some ways watershed election. ends the 40-year period of sun belt dominance. and there were issues that were critical in the politics that developed, that came out of the sun belt. they tended to have a conservative cast to them. tended to be oriented around issues of strong national defense, of an opposition to unions and a defense of free enterprise politics. and also it's in the sun belt in the south and southwest, that we see the rise of what -- by the 1970s we'll be talk about as the religious right. the rise of evangelical involvement in the process. so national defense, he was a staunch anticommunist and played an important role in right wing anticommunist politics in the late 1960s, one of the things that led him to switch parties in 1964. he was a key figure in opposing labor unions and did so long people like barry gold water. early in his caree
under the most conservative president and our lifetime, which was ronald reagan. it was reagan who approved the or signed into law the simpson readying a bill that provided the opportunity for about 3 million people who were then in the country, undocumented, to legalize their status. we are talking about 11 the following people that are undocumented in the united states. and i think that the extreme -- the most extreme right of the republican party understands that if 11 million to 12 laypeople are able to legalize their status and become voters, it will change the political landscape of america for decades to come. they understand it could spell doom of the republican party for a generation to come. and that's why i think there are struggling so much against it, just as they did back in 1986 with the first comprehensive immigration reform. so i think there is a political reason for this the vehement opposition to basically adjusting the status for folks that really, for the most part, are not criminals. they're hard-working people. there were forced to, by a variety of reasons, l
a likability factor here that rivals ronald reagan, right? and it's very similar to that. but more people disapprove of his policies than approve of them. and so when you look at that, he's mindful of that a little bit. he's got a power to persuade when you have those kind of likability numbers. but at the same time, the public is sort of screaming at all of washington to do what savannah was talking about. and when we asked him wa kihat of message you want to send, he said fix this economy, create jobs and is for gosh sakes, compromise. i'm told in this anaugural address, he's going to be pragmatic of hope and is change rather than the full scale high level expectations you had four years ago, brian. >> and, chuck, these are speeches for the ages, the long view. but how much of current events do you think will be in it? we were speculating last night about two things in particular, number one, gun violence and the need, as the president sees it, to attack that as an issue quickly and, number two, we're going to be introducing doris kearns goodwin later on. what is the chance he doesn't q
to look at, do not repeat roe. roe was happened at a time the rapid social change, ronald reagan signed the most liberal abortion law in the country. this put a stop at all of this. this decreed liberal success before it was in the culture. it creates all the social tension. let the people work it out in the states. in referenda. but not to do it by decree on high. i hope that the court learned that lesson and won't do the same with gay issues as well. >> bret: fox polled right before the election, a.b., had the split pro-choice. you know, depending on the poll, it is a fairly close split. change here and there. >> those people would argue that using the terms is not really accurate polling. everyone is pro-life, even if they support the right to an abortion. other polling, majority in the high 60s in support for roe and legal abortion. that said, pro-life movement waged on restriction and access has been suckbe sesful. they have succeeded in acting restriction -- enacting restrictions across the country in every state that has reduced access to abortion that has taken the pro-choice mo
of office for the first time. >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> i, ronald reagan, do solemnly swear -- >> and it with news 1981 when ronald reagan was taking the oath on the steps of the u.s. capital word came that 52 americans who had been held hostage for 440 days in iran were on the way home. and moments later, the newly sworn in president reagan revealed the news to congress in the statuary hall. >> and now the conclude the test with thanks to almighty god, i have been given a tag line, to get-off line that everybody wants for the end of a toast or speech or anything else. some 30 minutes ago, the planes bearing our prisoners left iranian air space and are now fr free. so -- [ applause ] >> so, we can all drink to this one, to all of us together, doing what we all know we can do to make this country what it should be, what it can be, what it always has been. >> seven days later the former hostages were back on american soil. they landed at an drews air force base and greeted by family and friends and the new vice president, george h.w. bush. >> promises made and promises b
control measures, many of which were supported by president ronald reagan when he worked to pass the assault weapons ban in 1994 when the ban only passed by two votes, that we're going to have to act right now. i think programs like yours are essential to explain how hard this fight is going to be and how motivated every single person that has ever wanted to do anything about this issue needs to do it right now. the president has put his personal prestige behind trying to get this gun. the vice president has worked on common sense reforms, but everybody who is through anything like what you just n d named in cities and communities across the united states of america need to understand that this is going to be hard, tough, long and la boroborious, but it going to be worth it. >> congressman moran, i read on bloomberg that there's an estimation that come 2015 flash flood there is no legislative change, there will be more deaths per year in this country than deaths as a con discrepancies of road traffic accidents. they're anticipating 33,000 gun deaths as compared to 32,000 as a co
commentator suggesting the president's mission now is to reverse everything that ronald reagan put in place 30 years ago. our panel debates that in a moment. >> this was really obama unbound and i think what is most interesting is that obama basically is declaring the end of reaganism in this speech. jenna shared her recipe with sharon, who emailed it to emily, who sent it to cindy, who wondered why her soup wasn't quite the same. the recipe's not the recipe... ohhh. [ female announcer ] ...without swanson. the broth cooks trust most when making soup. mmmm! [ female announcer ] the secret is swanson. bill: some breaking news from the high court. supreme court will not consider an appeal over how much authority the epa should have in setting air quality standards. that appeal filed by a company that operates one of the three main u.s. copper plants. it was appealing a decision by the d.c. circuit court in july that had uphold the environmental protection agency, the epa's new air quality standard for sulfur dioxide. you got that? martha: got it. bill: all clear? martha: leading conservative cha
not addressing that? ronald reagan looked into the mental health institutions. why should we take whatever basic civil liberties it? guest: that as a central aspect and both parties agree that certainly, in the case of these high-profile shootings like a new town and the debbie giffords shooting and others that sometimes the problem is with the state of the shooter. we saw that in colorado, apparently as well. in many cases, you look back on these instances and it turns out to their warning signs along the way and that the mental health system, the educational system, did not have any way of taking these people in and channeling them into some kind help for themselves. how you deal with that? have you identify those people? how do you fund these programs? these are legitimate and complicated issues that will probably be part of this debate. there is no easy answer to any of this. my guess is that we will see some incremental changes, efforts to fund particular things, pilot programs that might have some broader lessons that can be applied. host: on the economy, president obama yesterday said the
about second term curses that have brought down richard nixon, hampered ronald reagan, bill clinton. people forget reagan was able to get tax reform, bill clinton was able to get a balanced budget. certainly a big opportunity for the president but fully aware in the white house, a lot of challenges ahead as well, jenna. >> certainly not challenges for a father. nice to see the first family, ed, and how much the girls have grown up over the last four years. what we're looking at for the president tomorrow besides the hair styles and what everybody is wearing at the inauguration is what is he going to say? what will be the address to the nation tomorrow? you mentioned some policy challenges ahead. what are you hearing about tomorrow's address and how that might set the table, if you will, for the years to come? >> true. what i'm hearing is the state of the union address next month is really where the president will go with a deeper dive on policy, whether it be gun control, immigration reform, the debt ceiling debate. tomorrow's broad scene. his senior advisor will talk about bringing

and the 21st century as the champions as we see ourselves as the rule of law as ronald reagan would like to see, a city shining on the hill, what befuddles you most about as you look at this debate about guns and violence? >> i think one of the most interesting things for me to see with the discussion is the idea that comes up over and over again about futility, efforts to regulate guns. i think one statistic that almost everybody knows about guns in america as we have about 300 million people and about 300 million guns in at least lots of people to think anything we do in the regulatory side is futile. i'm actually not that pessimistic myself and this is one of the themes that comes up in the public discussions as we move forward after the president announces tomorrow for two reasons. one thing important to keep in mind is that they are a very concentrated and very set in terry. 10% of people in the united states on about 80% of the guns. they're mostly middle class middle aged people in rural areas and they hold onto their kind for a long time. on the other hand, most of the people eng

inaugurations. you've served for three different presidents starting with ronald reagan and then 41 and then 43 as well. today, while we watch what's going on on the west face of the capitol, at the white house, whole bunch of people are reenergized because a lot of people get new offices, new assignments. plain how that works -- explain how that works behind the scene. >> it's sort of like new year's day. you're all excited and you make all kinds of promises that you're going to lose weight and exercise and it's very exciting. people get to move into offices. they shuffle around, get new phone numbers, new business cards. take an oath of office to help the president do his could be and protect and defend the constitution of the united states against all enemies, foreign and domestic. so it's exciting. they're bringing their families in. it's an exciting time. it's also a time of cleaning out because there is some people that won't be staying. when they change hands, if you will, inside the white house, there are some people that will say, what comes next? i haven't made any plans. there will b
